Putative functions of mosquito-associated microbiota (bacteria and fungi). Functions related to metabolism are indicated in orange and those related to life history traits are indicated in yellow: (1) Blood digestion (Acinetobacter, Pantoea, Enterobacter, Dysgonomonas), (2) Sugar digestion (Acinetobacter, Elizabethkingia, Thorsellia, Sphingomonadaceae family, Meyerozyma), (3) Supply of vitamins and amino acids (Dysgonomonas, Klebsiella, Aeromonas, Saccharomyces cerevisiae), (4) Survival (Escherichia coli, Beauveria bassiana), (5) Mediating oviposition site choice (Klebsiella, Aeromonas), (6) Egg production (Comamonas), (7) Larval development (Acinetobacter, Asaia, Aeromonas, Chryseobacterium, Paenibacillus, Aquitalea, Escherichia coli) [19, 25, 68, 71,72,73,74,75, 77, 80].
